"What is the spirit? The MANIFESTATION OF GOD! The CREATIVE Force working in, with and upon what? The awareness, the interconsciousness of the BODY, the mind, the spirit, as separated in individuals!" Cayce
"The essence of spirit is the thought of God.
" [Dialogue on Awakening
"Spirit forces are the animation of ALL LIFE giving life-producing forces in animate or inanimate forces." Cayce
"Spirit is substance, as Spinoza taught: "The universe is one. There is no supernatural; all is related, cause and sequence. Like fire, which is a spiritual order of vibration, spirit is latent in all matter. One might as well try to operate a steam-engine without its boiler as to give motion to matter against the conditions imposed by nature, or to propose a new method of controlling the action of our physical organisms (other than through the sympathetic transfer? of our mental forces) as an improvement on the one instituted by the Almighty." Newton of the Mind
"Spirit is the vibrating energy which underlies the manifestations of all matter."
Dr. Ralph Spencer Lewis?
, Rosicrucian Order, AMORC
"Spirit is a universal essence pervading all nature, even unconscious matter, and manifesting in many ways, such as cohesion, adhesion, etc. It is a Divine, universal, essence-like Soul, but of a lower rate. Spirit essence makes its first material manifestation in the formation of electrons, which enter into the composition of atoms. Soul, as an essence, can manifest only psychically, because of its very high rate of vibration."
Dr. H. Spencer Lewis
, Rosicrucian Order, AMORC
"... spiritual, includes the etheric, interetheric and luminous in combination, each of which is essential to the proper completion of the combined action, comprising as it does every minute law governing the celestial and terrestrial universe."
, Newton of the Mind
"There is a vast difference between spiritual and soul forces, for, as given, about each force there has been set guards or bounds. Spirit forces are the animation of ALL LIFE giving life-producing forces in animate or inanimate forces. Spiritual elements become corporeal when we speak of the spiritual body in a spiritual entity; then composed of spirit, soul, and superconsciousness...
"Spiritual forces being the life, the reproductive principle, the soul, the development principle... The active principle is the spirit." Cayce
“Those who are sufficiently unprejudiced to connect the bearings of this discovery, of what must be dynaspheric force
, with phenomena which have hitherto been regarded as supernatural
by the ignorant, will perceive how rapidly we are bridging over the chasm which has divided the seen
from the unseen
, obliterating the distinction between 'matter
' and what has most erroneously been called 'spirit
In 1882 a lady, conversing with Mr. Keely
, said, “You have opened the door into the spirit-world”
. He answered, 'Do you think so? I have sometimes thought I might be able to discover the origin of life”
. At this time Mr. Keely
had given no attention whatever to the occult
bearing of his discovery; and it was only after he had pursued his researches, under the advantages which his small Liberator
afforded him for such experiments, that he realized the truth
of this woman's assertion. It was then, in 1887, that a “bridge of mist” formed itself before him, connecting the laws
which govern physical science
with the laws
which govern spiritual science
, and year by year this bridge of mist has solidified, until now he is in a position to stand upon it, and proclaim that its abutments have a solid foundation — one resting in the material and visible world
, and the other in the spiritual and unseen world
; or, rather, that no bridge is needed to connect the two worlds, one law governing both in its needed modifications.
“The physical thing”
, writes a modern scientist, “which energises and does work in and upon ordinary matter, is a separate form of matter, infinitely refined and infinitely rapid in its vibrations, and is thus able to penetrate through all ordinary matter, and to make everywhere a fountain of motion, no less real because unseen. It is among the atoms of the crystal and the molecules of living matter; and, whether producing locked effects or free, it is the same cosmic thing, matter in motion, which we conceive as material energy, and with difficulty think of as only a peculiar form of matter in motion.”
, commenting upon this view of energy
, says: “This is nothing more nor less than what we have been in the habit of calling 'spirit'.”
“Mind is also composed of this extraordinary matter; so is will; so is every emotion”.
calls it “heavenly substantiality”
, and Swedenborg?
calls it “natural and spiritual atmospheres, composed of discrete substances of a very minute form”.
has invented the word “protyle?
”, Professor Cones?
calls it “soul-stuff”
, or biogen?
; while Occultists call it “astral fluid”.
